    1. Dry hair is caused due to less moisture in the hair shafts. You have to try oiling and hair mask methods 2 – 3 times in a week. Avoid washing your hair daily as it can strip off natural oils from the hair which leaves the hair dry. Avoid excess sun exposure and dry weather. Eat nutritious food and drink plenty of water. Use shampoos that contain less chemicals as your herbal shampoos are making your hair greasy.
